worse off, but our economy is, because they're going to get the health insurance in the emergency room, that drives up costs for all of us and it's bad for the individuals, as well. i'm hoping maybe, just maybe the republicans are finally interested in quality health carrot lower cost, but up until a couple of days ago they weren't talking about health care almost for a generation. >> bob casey of pennsylvania. thanks for making time for me this morning. i appreciate it. >> we say good morning to special correspondent kelly goff and the managing editor. james, let me start with you. how do you think that kathleen sebelius did on the hill yesterday, if you were rating her presentation and the way that she answered? did she put up a good fight? >> i think so. i think i would give her an emmy, an 8 or 9 on the scale of 10. what the administration needed for her to do was two things. one, kind of toe the administration's line which is confronting the challenges, saying the mea culpas, acknowledging the problems with the website, but trying to stay focused on the affordable care act itself
, one in four of his citizens are on food stamps. this is an incredible impact on the economy. for every $5 spent on food stamps there's $9 in the economy. so this is a very important social safety net for working families, seniors, disabled and poor children. so that's what i think we ought to be mainly concerned about is this plan to cut $40 billion over the next ten years because then the problem becomes very, very structural and long term. >> sir, thanks for making time for me. i appreciate it. >>> joining me is former dnc chair howard dean. sir, it's good to have you with me now. you may have heard me talking with the congressman about the gop sabotage politico was talking about. that's hardly a secret. part of that campaign has been one of misinformation, being intellectually dishonest about how people are losing their insurance plans. we've got a couple of articles out today. the l.a. times says back in march they placed these plans in a category called junk health insurance. some plans may be worse than having none at all. so these points also make that the expecting insurance co
and reducing the fraction of our national economy that goes for health care? >> well, i think that we have already had some success. i think the goal is to continue to achieve that. a fully insured population arguably with preventive care, with an opportunity to see a primary care doctor and not go through the emergency room will in and of itself reduce costs. having people identified earlier who may have serious problems and managing those problems will reduce health costs. but i think the delivery system also needs some considerable help in paying for number of procedures, number of tests, number of prescriptions but paying for health outcomes. >> thank you, mr. chairman. >> mr. latta. >> thank you very much, mr. chairman. and madam secretary, thanks very much for being with us today. appreciate your testimony so far today. what i'd like to do is i'll get these to you because these are questions that we've received from our constituents back home, specifically about what's going on with the website and for them. and so what i'll do, i would like to get those to you, but there's a lot of
economy and the humanitarian situation is getting worse. even in countries like jordan which has a tense border with syria, a lot of the border skirmishes we've seen has cost lives of refugees, syrian refugees in jordan. now the jordanian government has closed its border to these refugees. a lot of these smaller countries are not able to cope with the pressure. they are not able to cope with the humanitarian crisis. >> a day, $700,000, i was hearing, in terms of electricity costs in one of the camps in jordan. this is a massive undertaking. >> the refugee camp in jordan has become the fifth largest city in that country to give you a sense of how big -- >> fifth largest? >> yes. >> wow. let's talk about the issue of the deadline for chemical weapons removal. evidently that has been made, at least one of the initial deadlines. but has that focus on chemical weapons taken away the focus on the civilians themselves? conventional weapons have caused most of the injuries and deaths to these civilians. >> that's the criticism that some of the syrian opposition is making, that this intense focus
in the double digits between 2008 and 2012 among black men in part because of the economy. and that's what shaquille o'neal touted in his endorsement of christie. i think this is something the democrats have to worry about, whether clinton is on the ballot or not. >> if we do look at clinton being on the ballot or not, there is an achilles heel when it comes to benghazi. senator lindsey graham said republicans were going to double down on their efforts to get to the bottom of what happened there, thinking that they haven't asked enough questions and they don't have enough answers publicly. he specifically mentioned secretary clinton. take a listen. >> and where was hillary clinton during all these multiple requests for security? you could see this attack a long time in the making, according to the people on the ground in libya. why couldn't you see it in washington? and who the hell told susan rice this story about a protest gone bad? >> so it seems that benghazi and that being a strength for republicans going after hillary clinton will remain a strength all the way through 2016. >> it's a
to hijack the entire party and the country and the economy and grind progress to an absolute halt if they don't get 100% of what they want. if you embrace the very politics that led to this shutdown, then i guarantee you, it's not in the rear-view mirror of voters in virginia. they remember. they understand that that is not how you govern and that is not how you move america forward. >> so, larry, cuccinelli's campaign is predicting that the president's presence there would energize republican voters who were outraged over the botched rollout of obama care. is there a chance that cuccinelli could pull out a last-minute win because of the problems with the obama care website and not about what's in the rear-view mirror of the shutdown? >> you know, i always say there's always a chance, because every now and then all the polls are wrong and the turnout pattern is very different than they projected and that the rest of us projected. but let's remember it is very rare. the truth is, i don't think lets remember it is very rare. the truth is i don't think there's been a single professio
